Message from the Principal

Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends,

On Monday we celebrated ANZAC Day with a school Liturgy. The school community remained sombre throughout the Liturgy, respecting the importance of the day as we remember the soldiers who sacrificed their lives for their country. The school community, over 750, moved in silence and in reverence to our Outdoor Learning Centre where Lucy Lloyd-Morgan, our Cor Unum Head 2017, and I placed a wreath. We are blessed to have a War memorial onsite which includes representations of the cliffs and trenches of Anzac Cove, our own Lone Pine tree brought from Gallipoli, a Peace Pole and a dove motif. All of these symbols help us remember the sacrifice others have made for the freedom of us all. This ritual of remembrance clearly demonstrates the respect and self discipline of which our girls are capable.

On ANZAC Day morning, I accompanied our Boarders to the Toowong War Memorial for the Dawn Service. It was a privilege to attend this service and to be part of the such a beautiful tradition. I was extremely proud of all the students who attended, they represented Stuartholme School beautifully, again expressing respect and reverence.

One of the reasons we celebrate the ANZAC spirit is because it reminds us of the mateship and good humour which we value so greatly as a country. In stark contrast and in true ANZAC spirit, the Boarders spend the rest of ANZAC Day in a more light-hearted way, with the annual ANZAC Cup. Congratulations to Grenoble House on winning the Cup this year, and to Amiens who won the Spirit Cup.

Our Boarders know when to be reverent and when to revel and roister. They transformed from solemn to ‘silly’ – a day full of fun.

God bless and take care,

Kristen Sharpe

Drop Off/Pick Up Zone safety

As part of our internal road upgrade in 2015, Stuartholme worked with the Traffic Engineers to determine the safest location of our drop off/pick up zones.

The zones have been designed to allow cars to safely pull off the road so your daughter can enter or exit the car safely. As an extra precaution, it is always safer if students can exit or enter the car from the side closest to the curb. It is also safer if bags are not placed in the boot or hatch of the car, to avoid the need for students to enter the ‘danger’ zone between vehicles.

Dropping off or picking up your daughter from other locations, such as the roundabout or tennis courts, does not offer the same level of safety.

We also remind parents and visitors that the maximum speed limit on any roads within the school is 20 km/h and 10 km/h in shared zones – This applies at all times (24 hours per day, 7 days per week).

Finally, we ask students to always use the crossings provided.

Thank you for your support in this matter.

Winter uniform

Parents and girls are reminded that after the May long weekend (this weekend), wearing  blazers to and from school is compulsory.

Girls may choose to leave their blazers in their lockers during the school day but must wear it when travelling to and from school. Girls may wear vests and jumpers under their blazer if the weather is particularly cold, but the blazer should always be the outer garment worn. Whilst not compulsory, girls may choose to wear the navy school stockings in the cooler weather but these must be in good repair, that is, free from holes and ladders.

It was pleasing to see the majority of girls with their school hats on as we gathered outside for our ANZAC Day ceremony earlier in the week however there were a number of students without a hat. All girls should be wearing their hat to and from school as well.

I have had reason to speak with a few girls this week regarding the state of their uniform – split seams and hems coming down.

Thank you for your support in ensuring your daughter is presenting herself well for school.

Students can now pre-order morning tea and lunch.

We ask that the students who wish to use this service, order and pay for their morning tea/lunch at the Cafe counter before school (between 7:30-8:25am). Students will then collect their order during the break periods.

Students will also be able to purchase after hours food (3-3.45pm). This service will be available Monday-Thursday. Students are asked to go to the kitchen and purchase from the menu. Correct change would be appreciated.

Both of these new services are in the development stage and we will be flexible in trying to achieve the best way to cater for the demand.

YGAP – Your chance to win $100 visa voucher

In support of poverty alleviation through education, Stuartholme will once again participate in the YGAP 5 cent campaign. The YGAP 5 cent campaign aims to reinstate the value of 5 cent coins and improve global access to education. By collecting the loose change which we would usually consider insignificant, our Stuartholme community can take a stand against the root cause of poverty. A handful of loose change could send a young girl to school, which will empower her to earn money, feed her family and defeat the poverty cycle.

In recognition of each person’s effort to collect change, every $1 raised will translate to two House points per person. These House points could be the deciding margin for the overall House trophy at the end of the year. Additionally, a $100 visa voucher will be awarded to the student or teacher who collects the greatest number of 5 cent coins.

So please support YGAP and your House by collecting your 5 cent coins and any other spare change you have laying around the house. We will be collecting and tallying everyone’s donations in the last week of Term.

The small change which we may consider insignificant could be life changing for a little girl in a disadvantaged community.

Science Snippets

Did you know that on April 24 2017 Live Science published an article called, “Gulp! Soda Linked to Memory Woes, Strokes and Dementia”? This article says that in two recent studies undertaken, people who drink soft drink on a regular basis are more likely to have smaller brain volumes. The studies also showed that people are more likely to develop dementia or have a stroke if they drink soda. Food (drink) for thought?

In recent events, on 22 April (Earth Day) the ‘March for Science’ occurred in more than 600 cities around the world. These marches were a part of rallies against the Trump administration and recent policies made. The march was to celebrate science and the role it plays in everyday life. The goals of these events were to underline that science upholds the common good and to call for evidence-based policy in the public’s best interest.

There are a number of upcoming events that may interest some of you.

• Applications for the National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) 2018 are closing on the Wednesday 31 May. The NYSF is 12-day residential program for students in either Years 11 or 12. So if you are passionate about science and are looking to expand your knowledge be sure to apply.

• Anyone in Years 7-10 who is interested in science, take a look at the Big Science Competition. This competition takes place from 17 to 24 May. There are plenty of prizes involved. If you do well you can be invited to international science camps and mentoring programs, but if you just want to participate you go in a the draw to win prizes for just doing so! Click here for more information.  Ms Macdonald is keen to hear from anyone wanting to complete this test online. Please email her.

Finally, for anyone just looking for some weekend fun, there’s lots of events at the Science Centre in South Brisbane. Click here to find out more.

Equestrian News

The majority of the team competed at events during the holidays with a number of state qualifications being achieved. The inclement weather  made it difficult as competitions were cancelled due to grounds being unsuitable and unsafe. The impacts of Ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie forced the Stuartholme competition to be abandoned, however we are aiming to reschedule the Dressage component for Saturday 3 June to allow Interschool riders the chance to gain more qualifiers. Our annual Show Jumping event will be on Sunday 4 June, making it a full weekend.

Results

Twelve riders competed at the Tambourine Eventing competition over the Easter weekend in the Junior classes with excellent results. The discipline has become very influential in the team.

EVA 1 star – Emily Rink overall 4th and 6th.

EVA 105cms – Georgia Rink overall 5th; Ellie Turnbull overall 7th and Piper Searle overall 12th.

Prelim 95cms- Bella Anthony Champion ; Issie Gilley overall 4th; Georgia Rink overall 8th.

EVA 80cms- Aalia Luchetta overall 7th; Emma Bickford qualifier for States.

Come and Try 60 cms event – Abby Munro 1st Place.

On the same weekend two riders competed at Hubbards competition again achieving excellent results.

Phoebe Menzies 7th overall Combined Training 95cms.

Grace Beatty overall 4th combined Training 80cms/ overall 4/6 Show Jumping 80 cms/ overall 5th Showman 80cms.

Congratulations to all the riders.

South East Queensland Regionals

This event over the May Day long weekend in Beaudesert is the annual big event for the area and also for the team. The full team will be competing in five disciplines – Combined Training, Dressage, Show Horse, Show Jumping and Showman.

We wish the riders every success and thank the parents for their support over the three days of competition. All the very best also to Michelle Beatty and Sharon Baker for the Showman Event which they are convening on the Monday.

 

 

Aquis and Kings competitions results.

The annual Aquis Event attracts the top Australian show jumpers to one of the biggest events on the Show Jumping calendar and was fortunately also an Interschool State qualifier for 2017. A couple of the team competed over the weekend enjoying success in very elite company.

Piper Searle achieved 3rd place and Bella Anthony (in the photo below) achieved 12th in their respective classes. This was great preparation for the Regional event this coming weekend in Beaudesert.

Kings also had an event. Unfortunately, they were supposed to host it at the lovely Mudgereeba PC grounds but the cyclone devastated them, however Kings College managed to run a smaller event nearby.

Congratulations to our riders who came home with some wonderful results in the Combined Training discipline and who are also competing at Regionals this weekend.

Ellie Turnbull overall 1st 95cms; Bella Anthony 2nd /4th 95 cms; Remy Conescu overall 1st 80 cms and 4th 60cms; Aalia Luchetta overall 5th 60 cms.

Well done to everyone and the very best of riding to the whole team at the South East Queensland Regional Event this coming long weekend in Beaudesert. Supporters are always welcome it is not too far to come !

Rowing Update

The Australian Rowing Championships was held in Sydney on the final week of Term 1. Phoebe Robinson (Year 11), travelled down to compete with her UQ teammates. Alumnae Daniella Serra (2011) and Kenzi Wareham (2016) also competed with their Toowong teammates.

I’m very happy to report that the girls had some wonderful success at the Championships.

Phoebe and her UQ teammates won Gold in the U19 Women’s Four and Gold in the U19 Women’s Eight, making them National Champions in both divisions. This is an incredible achievement by Phoebe, who is one of the youngest competitors in the U19 division. Congratulations Phoebe!

The day following Nationals, Phoebe rejoined her Stuartholme teammates in Brisbane on their second day of holiday training camps – extraordinary effort Phoebe, well done.

Daniella was selected as coxswain for the Interstate Women’s Eight to race for the Queens Cup at this competition, the highest prestige in QLD rowing.

Daniella and her Toowong teammates claimed Bronze in the Interstate Women’s Eight and won Gold in the U23 Men’s Eight.

Kenzi also had some great performances with her team and despite some late illnesses placed a close 5th in the U19 Women’s Four and 4th in the Open Women’s Sprint by 0.14s! Well done Daniella and Kenzi!

Gold, silver and a new PB for Taylah

Congratulations to Taylah Tyerman-Webster, Year 9 who competed in the Australian Open Swimming Championships last week.

Taylah had three relay swims, of which they won a gold and silver medal. In her one individual event, Female 50 Freestyle, Taylah improved her ranking from 33rd to 24th in Australia, swimming with a new personal best (PB) of 26.78 secs. This is an amazing achievement for a 14 year old girl competing against adults and two world Champions (Cate and Bronte Campbell).

Last week, Taylah competed in the Australian Age Swimming Championships. She had three relays and four individual swims. Taylah swam just outside her best for most of them, but excitingly came 4th in Australia for Girls 14 years 50 Freestyle.

Well done Taylah!
